Three Things You Didn’t Know About Trenchless Pipe Repair

Sewer line cleaning

A surprising number of homeowners today don’t know about repairing or replacing their home’s sewer lines. Many people think these procedures involve digging up a massive trench to access the sewer line — but in reality, trenchless sewer line procedures have been around for about 15 years.

But what is a trenchless sewer line repair?

These repairs allow for a quick, effective repair of your home’s sewer lines and drains with just one access hole dug in the ground, revolutionizing the sewer line repair process and providing a clear advantage over other repair techniques.

Could a trenchless sewer line repair be the answer to all your home’s plumbing problems? It’s actually more likely than you think. Find out more with this list of the three facts every homeowner should know about trenchless sewer repair:

Trenchless repairs are minimally-invasive

Whether you’re getting a trenchless pipe lining or pipe bursting done, both procedures require only one access hole to be dug in the ground. Through this hole, a resin-coated tube can be inserted into the existing sewer line. The tube will expand to the sewer line’s original dimensions, then harden in place. Many people prefer this option because it requires very little digging, which preserves valuable landscaping and yardwork. It’s also ideal for homes in historic neighborhoods.

Trenchless repairs last longer than other sewer line repairs

Traditionally, sewer lines needed to be replaced once every 40 years or so. However, the materials used for trenchless pipe repair and replacement are more durable and corrosion-resistant than materials that were previously used to construct sewer lines, meaning you’ll have less need to repair your sewer lines over the years.

Trenchless repairs are more affordable

Because you won’t need to restore your yard to its original state after your sewer line repair, trenchless repairs are much more cost-effective and affordable than other methods. It also saves you significant amounts of money on the costs of paying a team to dig a trench.
